Small silver leaved tree. Stems white with dark blotches. Juvenile leaves are round and a shimmering silver blue. As the tree matures, its leaves are larger and longer and their colour more blue

Most Eucalypts will tolerate a fairly wide range of soil types including quite poor ones. Most will grow in acid to moderately alkaline soils (PH 4.5 to 7.5). They are shallow rooting and young trees do not like competition from grass and weeds. It is best to plant when the trees are still very small (45cm) or use specially prepared stock
